Foam rolling is so much more than just a new fitness trend—it’s one of the best ways to improve joint function, enhance mobility, and decrease post-workout muscle soreness. As multiple studies have discovered, foam rolling can reduce delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) and keep your muscles in tip-top shape!
Let’s face it. Aging and staying active can be a challenge. It requires a methodical and comprehensive approach if you want to continue to grow muscle and keep crushing PRs. The changes that take place in your body extend all the way down to your cellular structure. But the damage incurred by cells in older muscles is especially severe because they do not regenerate easily and they become less efficient as the mitochondria, which produce energy, diminish in numbers and how robust they are.
Getting ripped abs at 40 and beyond is still one of the main goals men and women want to achieve in their lifetime. It is a bucket list item and to be straight up, I fully support the endeavor for a number of reasons.

Human Growth Hormone or HGH or even GH is an impressive metabolic agent in the body with a variety of functions from fat loss to building lean muscle. How do you go about maximizing the presence of this hormone within your body, and gain the many advantages it can produce. Let’s take a deeper dive

I could not afford to have word loss, or an inability to make critical calculations on the fly or even forget things.

We’ve all heard the popular advice that doing cardio (low-intensity, steady state) is the best way to burn fat. After all, low-intensity exercise uses fatty acids for energy rather than glycogen, and those fatty acids come from stored body fat. So it makes total sense that cardio—jogging, cycling, skipping rope, and all the other low-intensity workouts—are going to help you burn fat. Well, maybe not…
